Spring holidays are coming, and fashion is such a great place to start to look for inspiration for your tablescapes. When I saw this outfit from Stella Jean, I just knew I had to recreate a pattern combination like this for my table.
First I gathered various patterns that work in a similar way to this outfit. I used a black and white floral in vertical print to make up the stripe bit, and started with one of my favorite red/pink florals. I made four round placemats, and napkins and ordered a tablecloth. I wanted the gingham to be the base. I varied the scale based on fabric I had on hand, and used a variety of Bari J. fabrics to create the look.
The ingredients I used were:
- Black and white gingham table cloth
- A large scale red and pink floral. I used Bari J. 365 Fifth Avenue Fabric Collection, Dressing Room - Rouge
- A vertical black and white print that works like a stripe. I used Bari J. Virtuosa Fabric Collection, Plot's Fiori - Classico (It's actually a really light pink background but it appears close to white)
- A leopard print. I used Bari J. Indigo and Aster Fabric Collection, Animalia Exotica - Sand
- Desert Rose dishes mixed with various vintage pieces.
Here's the result:
What do you think? Did I nail it?
I hope this motivates you to take a look at fashion, and find ways to translate it to the table!
